Sonia Domenech – Bio – Exhibitions

bio

Born in Barcelona in 1974, her father was an architect, which led her to drawing at an early age. Her uncle, a renowned sculptor, Claudi Tarrago Borras, greatly influenced her decision to study art.

She attended art school at the age of 16, studying sculpture, influenced by Henry Moore and Giacometti. After this, studied at the Universidad de Bellas Artes (Sant Jordi) in Barcelona. During the 5 years at university she studied sculpture under the renowned sculptor Salvador Jassans.

After her studies she moved into digital art and art design and set up her own design company, which ultimately led her to move her focus to painting.
 
Whilst at an  Artist Residence Association Saint Henri in France she developed her love of painting, working with water colours and acrylics.
